I’ve been gone for so long but it’s time to catch you up! I forgot to tell you guys I went to New Orleans for food…I mean for my bff’s hub’s bday! It was fun and the Asian in me was beyond excited to be legally gambling in that town! Here are some pics!! This trip inspired me to make my own Halloween costume next year.
Sorry that soufflé looks so lewd. Oh and check out this Jason Mraz lookalike we saw!
Holy moly! Where have I been?
On a couple of trips…and busy eyerolling twitter and facebook political statuses.
I work a lot and I’ve been out of town almost every other weekend!
Let me break it down.
My first trip was at the beginning of October…where I went back to the city I love. NEW YORK CITY.
Glenn was working so I went with my friend for a quick weekend trip. It’s really sad to see images of the damage Sassy Sandy did to that area so make sure to donate some dinero here.
The main reason for our trip was to run my first 10k!
Rock n Roll New York was the perfect motivation for another trip to the city. My DREAM is to run the New York City marathon but a 10k is a bit more realistic at this point.
The race was in Prospect Park in Brooklyn and I surprised myself with my finish time: 57:25 with a 9:14 pace.
CAN I GET A HOLLLLAAAAAA. Honestly, I think running in Colorado’s higher altitude helped me in New York! My pace at home is always a 10 minute mile!
While there we got a day pass to check out New York Comic Con.
In my mind I had visions of running into celebrities…participating in movie and tv panels…but it was really…ALL comic books and video games. DUH right? I should have done my research…
I’m a nerd but I guess not not nerdy enough or freaky enough.
All the celebrity signing events had massive lines and you had to pay $40 to meet them! Including this guy:
Christopher LLoyd. (You’ll see why I bring him up later in my post).
After the shock of being at NYCC, we saw this Broadway show:
Once! It won a bunch of Tony awards and it was so good! Funnier than I expected.
During intermission guess who strolled up the aisle? CHRISTOPHER LLOYD!!! hahahah I didn’t have to pay $40 to see him after all! Unfortunately, I was too scared to approach him.
The “star” sightings don’t stop there….when we left the show we saw this massive crowd waiting for someone on the street…
A few minutes later guess who walks out of the building?
RICKY MARTIN!!!! Hahahah, I actually didn’t go cray cray like all those hott Latina mamas waiting in front of me.
And just when you think I couldn’t have any more “celeb” “encounters” we went back to our hotel and found that they were having a huge after party in our hotel bar/restaurant.
BET’s Black Girls Rock after party baby!! I couldn’t help but laugh at how random it was…I didn’t see any stars and we didn’t even wait around…
But the joke was on me…
Guess who was DJing at that damn event?
With this man…hell yah I’m “down with the swirl” !!!!
I should have tried to sneak into the bar!! I would have been like “YO I’M STAYING IN THIS HOTEL!!!”
And that is the end of my NYC adventure.
Love Central Park.
Hope you guys are doing swell!
And in case you are wondering, YES my writing is getting worse.
How’s your fall going?
I feel like for the first time I am REALLY “experiencing” it. Leaves don’t change colors in Texas and sure, I was here last year but this past weekend I was in the “midst” of nature in Vail!
I haven’t really talked about work but I’ve been trying to be a better person by mentoring pharmacy students at my job. A perk of this was an all expense paid trip to Vail. YOU KNOW ASIANS LOVE FREE!!!
It was my first healthcare provider conference so I was intimidated amongst 50 year old MDs, dentists, other PharmDs, and PTs who are so involved with students and community/volunteer work.
Not only did I leave feeling “inspired” (unless it’s the Prozac kicking in), it was also a great opportunity for Glenn and I to leave the city for a weekend together.
Although some of these photos are Instagrammed, trust me, the colors were even MORE vibrant in real life. It was just so gorgeous.
I had no idea Kim was going to be there but was happy to see a young and familiar face. We ended up “running” (the altitude KILLED ME) a “5k” (it was more like 2 miles) and Glenn got these paparazzi shots…I wish I was on TMZ
Although I stayed indoors all day on Saturday doing conference things, Glenn and I met our friend for a hike on Sunday. Big Horn Creek trail was uh…REALLY hard for me. I’m blaming it on the altitude but it was seriously harder than the reviews made it out to be. I’m probably also in denial at how out of shape I am.
Either way, AWESOME photo op of ME ME ME!
I love the panorama feature on my phone!
Anyways, hope you are enjoying fall wherever you guys are.
Oh my goodness.
Where do I even start? I haven’t written a real post in about 3 months. Life is good…real good. I love it here and I can’t stress enough how THANKFUL I am for the people that are in my life right now.
GAG. I know, I sound like Oprah or TYRA. Gross.
Anyways, here are just some snippets from my life for the past 3 months:
CELEB SIGHTING at the Paris airport: Elle Fanning!!! Girl from Super 8! We were so close to her that G read her luggage tag.
July 4th was spent with my Denver Bff Kristen at my first lacrosse game.
Magic Mike came out and my pharmacy friends and I acted like 7th graders and went to the movie in a huge group…we may or may not have gotten threats that we were getting kicked out of the theater…MAY.
Working on my body: Fitness on the Rocks is a yearly event where FREE yoga, kickboxing, boot camp, etc. classes are given to ANYONE at the Red Rocks amphitheater.
Yes, I’m that a$$hole that takes pictures of randoms bending over.
It was amazing seeing all the vendors but honestly…I did a turbo kick class for 1.5 hours and almost fainted from being in the sun!
I love my blog friends. I finally got to meet Lauren when she came in town! She’s superrr sweet on her blog, but girl can be snarky like me!!!
Lynne had her bachelorette party (she’s married now and did a half marathon).
One of my good friends came to visit me…where we ate and hiked.
Legs open pose=I look thinner.
G is officially a Denverite. He got a road bike…and proceeded to bike 30 miles the second day he got it…dumb. He came home shaking like a “r” victim.
Went to my first legit soccer game!
I also saw disgusting tattoos and dbags at a UFC fight.
Ran my SLOWESTTTT 5k. The Firefly run was at night and I was a bloated mess but I got to run it with Annie and Lena!
Trying to keep the paps at bay.
GOT TO SEE BOOK OF MORMON OPENING NIGHT FOR FREE AND SAT 4TH ROW CENTER AND SCREAMED THE ENTIRE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No big deal.
Tiffany was there too!
CELEB SIGHTING: Trey Parker and Matt Stone were there that night!
Painted “Starry Night”…Toni was there!
One of the BEST concerts ever: Mute Math.
Look how cute, big, and beautiful my godson is!!! Oh and my best friend? MILF.
Glenn’s best friend got married. He was the best man. My friend said I’m getting crow’s feet. We are getting old.
It’s crazy how time flies when you’re having fun. And when you’re having fun…the blog comes last.
Hope you guys are all doing well!
